Wild Thyme (Thymus serpyllum) - Long #1
This pendant contains two tiny flowers of Wild Thyme (Thymus serpyllum) pressed and preserved in a glass-like pane of resin.
Wild Thyme, like it's domestic counterpart, can be used as a culinary ingredient. The herb is prized among herbalists for it's soothing properties and is a common ingredient in cold-busting teas and cough drops. Spiritually, Wild Thyme has been considered a purifying herb since the days of the ancient Greeks, and was supposedly burned as an incense by temple keepers and priests to purify places of worship.
This specimen has been pressed and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
This pendant is one of a kind and will be wrapped in a manner similar to the last photo in the listing and come with a small tag stating the name of the species, stamped by hand and typed on a vintage typewriter.
Please let me know at checkout if you have a necklace length preference! Otherwise I will include an 18" chain by default.
